Pre-Academy

Our 2 to 4-year-old classes are open for girls and boys. The classes are designed for both parent/adult and toddler to participate. All M.R.F.A. staff are FA licensed and UEFA qualified coaches with senior staff undertaking age specific courses.

We give your children a positive introduction to football by teaching fundamental skills in a friendly, pressure-free environment. It's the perfect way to ignite an enthusiasm for sport that will stay with them for life.

Play and games are at the heart of everything we do. Our games cleverly disguise the learning aspect so the children just think they are playing. The more the children enjoy the games, the more they participate. This enjoyment leads to greater confidence, which in turn leads to self-initiated participation and independent play.
